“ONDO ACCIDENT: A COLOSSAL LOST TO THE STUDENTS COMMUNITY
We received with great shock the news of a ghastly accident involving a Dangote trailer which occurred in the evening of Saturday 23rd January, 2021, which claimed the lives of some of our students.
The leadership of NANS Southwest commiserates with the families of the victims, AAUA Community and the Akungba community in general on the sad incident.
The death is really a collosal lost to the students community such that it was a black Saturday for us as an association yesterday.
In this view, we demand that the government through its agency should look into this unfortunate incident and devise all working solutions to prevent a reoccurrence. We can’t afford another loss to death. The safety of our subject worths more than gold to us as an association.
One again, the leadership of NANS Southwest sympathize with the families and friends of the victims and we pray that God grant them fortitude to bear the lost.
May the souls of the victims rest in perfect peace. We love you and will miss you.”
